UPDATED! You may have noticed that contractors have cleared scrub and some trees along Donkey Lane and installed a new 6ft fence from the Greenways end to the rear of the houses on Wentworth Green. The new fence is to prevent people accessing the area off Donkey Lane which is private property. The site is also the home of a bat colony in the old Eaton chalk pit and is protected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The new fence will also prevent people disturbing the bats.
The Residents’ Association had not been informed about this work and were alerted to it by residents backing onto Donkey Lane. I have since spoken to the Norwich Fringe Project and to Natural England and to the Contractor and understand that the work has received the approval and support of Natural England.
